AOL Travel Editor’s Review

If a scenic promenade piques your fancy, winter or summer, Terrasse Dufferin aims to please. This famous riverside walkway right outside the iconic Fairmont Chateau Frontenac hotel provides stunning views for its entire 425-metre boardwalk. This being Québec City, after all, it also oozes with history—cozy up to a statue of explorer Samuel de Champlain as you walk where he once did. Best of all, though, is the quirky, colourful action that always electrifies Terrasse Dufferin. Vendors sell snacks and souvenirs, and during warm weather street performers dance around, juggle and entertain passersby with their kooky Québecois charm.
